|Fake label on Greenlite lamp|
Greenlite of Montreal, Quebec, a CFL manufacturer and now an LED-lamp purveyor, was speeding a little too quickly on the way to market and was caught on the radar of the US Department of Energy’s Lighting Facts program late on Thursday at Lightfair.
As shown in the picture, taken at the DOE booth at Lightfair on Thursday, the product packaging graphics include the Lighting Facts label, which was determined to be a counterfeit.
On Thursday it was confirmed that not only is the label a counterfeit, the appropriate documentation for the product in question has not been as submitted and that is likely also due to the fact that Greenlite itself is not even a Lighting Facts Partner.
In an interview with DOE representatives on Thursday, it was indicated that Greenlite will be receiving an official letter to cease and desist from DOE General Counsel…and the letter will not be a counterfeit!
